Public Employment Law Update

This course provides an in-depth analysis of current issues in public employment law and an overview of the previous year's developments. The Public Employment Law Update is open to employees of North Carolina state and local governments and affiliated organizations who have responsibilities for human resource functions, and to attorneys in private practice who represent public sector clients in employment matters. This program assumes that participants have a good working knowledge of the principles of public employment law. It is not an introduction to public employment law. 

The agenda will be uploaded under the Material tab after all speakers and topics are confirmed.

2019 Topics- 

  • Federal and state case law updates
  • US DOL’s new proposed overtime and regular rate regulations
  • CBD oil and drug testing
  • Update on the litigation challenging the Retirement Systems’ pension-capping law
  • Recent developments in sexual orientation and transgender status discrimination
